I hope to be able to use the tacho / revcounter with my new electric motor, but despite hours on the 'net I can't find out what signal (and what sort of signal) it received from the 3 cylinder engine.

Was it one pulse per rev, 1.5 pulses per rev, a pulse ever time a spark plug sparked? And is it a 12v sq wave? Anyone out there know?

BTW. I have found a hall effect sensor that will send out a 5 to 12v square wave from a collar mouted on the motor shaft, 1 pulse per rev.

The turbo scoop! Since the car's bonnet was crushed I scrapped the bonnet but kept the scoop. I found anearly mint blue bonnet on craigslist for $35, and when all is finished I intend to fit the scoop to it where I can duct the airflow over the controller heatsink.

Waving goodbye to the turbo 1.0l 3 cylinder. Thanks to Carneys Waste for the use of the truck and hoist.
